As editors it has been fun. We just wrapped up the fall semester 
and went right into the spring semester. Everyone worked very hard to get 
this issue out. We just wanted to say thank you for all the effort put into 
this issue. For Doris Decker it was her last issue as editor along with her 
last semester at Butler. "I loved working with everyone I will miss working 
on the magazine," says Decker

Jfes you desire for a 
price that is affordable. 

Almost everyone dreams" of having a 
closet full of the best clothes; buRisually 
the best comes with a big price tag. Having the 
best clothing or style does not mean paying the 
most expensive price. Styles have changed so 
much over the years. With that change in style 
also comes .aj^lnge in the prices. It is some- 
times difficult to keep the same style and spend- 
ing habits if you are strapped for money. An 
example of this situation would be a college stu- 

Many times a child grows up in the com- 
fort of their parents' house. Then after moving 
out of their parents' house, students are sud- 
denly on their own. The reality of being on their 
own sets in. Now they have to learn to manage 
their own money. 

Being a college student has curbed the 
spending of millions of students in the world. As 
they are now faced with many payments, fees 
and new things they have to pay for. Learning 
how to control spending is probably one of the 
hardest things to do. Especially while in college 
because a student is now independent and 
does not have their parents telling them what to 

So is it possible to keep in style without 
breaking the bank? Of course. There are many 
options. A shopper has to learn to modify in var- 
ious ways. This includes buying lower priced 
items or shopping at a less expensive store. It is 
hard to change shopping habits, but in order to 
save those few extra dollars it has to be done. 

The best method of cheaper shopping is 
the clearance rack. It has the same items, just 
at a cheaper price. Stores that you normally 
wouldn't think of have some of the greatest 
clearance item, such as Kohl's, American Eagle, 
and Aeropostale. 

There are many secondhand stores 
such as Goodwill or Salvation Army. Others 
include Plato's Closet, Ross, etc. There are 
stores where the clothes are cheaper, but still 
have good quality. 

Morgan Waers, Shawnee Mission fresh- 
says, "I used to work at Plato's and I 
wcjtild advise buying from there. Even though it 
*1s. a secondhand store it is expertly handled." 

Many college freshmen are on a limited 
budget. A budget that only lets them spend 
money on the things they need, not necessarily 
the things they want. So in order to get the 
necessities for daily living and the things that 
are in style it helps to be a smart shopper and 
pay less for more. 

"I am on a very tight budget," Josh Tyler, 
Wichita sophomore, says. "Most of the time I 
don't have a lot of extra money left over for new 
clothes. But when I do have extra money the 
clearance racks at Kohl's and American Eagle 
are where I turn to find my style of clothing and 
just what I like." 

Stores like these are good for the strug- 
gling college student because they offer the 
same style of clothing that is on the racks at 
name brand stores, but for a lower price.

Going into college can mean 
more independence and more freedom. 
With independence and freedom comes 
the responsibility of taking control, and 
being able to defend yourself when vio- 
lence comes your way. Many women 
today need to learn how to avoid vio- 
lence and protect themselves when that 
time comes, if it does. 

The most important thing as a 
woman is to carry the precise equip- 
ment and have the right attitude. 
Always have your phone on you. If you 
do not have a phone or it is not working 
at the moment, get an old one to carry 
around. It will give the attacker the idea 
that you have a connection and a way 
out. Another thing women should carry 
on them is pepper spray. If it should 
ever be used on the attacker, it would 
cause them to shut their eyes whether 
it is painful or not. Women should also 
carry a confident attitude. Even if you 
are lost or confused, act like you know 
where you are going and be sure to 
show you are determined to get there. 
Women who look "lost" seem weaker 
and way more vulnerable than those 
who carry their head high. 

One way to avoid a potential 
attack is to trust your instincts. If you 
feel as if you are being watched, per- 
haps you are. Your common sense 
would tell you to get to a place where 
there are more people around or a 
vehicle to lock yourself in, so listen to it. 

Another avoidance mechanism 

is something experts call de-escalation. 
Basically it is just a way of making sure 
things don't get worse than they already 
are. Just by controlling your temper you 
can de-escalate the situation. If the rob- 
ber says "Give me all your money" just 
give him/her all your money. Don't fight 
back or wrestle because you never know 
if they will go to extreme measures to 
get what they want. 

For those of you girls in a rela- 
tionship, make sure it isn't an abusive 
one. Whether it is physical, emotional or 
psychological abuse: abuse is abuse. 
The biggest mistake a woman can make 
is thinking it will get better, and that it is 
their fault. News flash: Things will only 
get worse. There are many warning 
signs to having an abusive partner such 
as jealousy, criticizing you, always need- 
ing control, and much more. If this 
sounds like your partner, keep a close 

According to, a woman is 
attacked every three seconds. The world 
is full of robbers, rapists, muggers, crimi- 
nals and much more so women, it's time 
you stand up for yourself!

Safety Tips for Young Women 

1. Don't leave your beverage unattended or accept a drink from an open container 

2. When you go to a party, go with a group of friends. Arrive together, watch out for each other, and leave 

3. End the date early if your date becomes drunk. 

4. Don't allow yourself to be isolated with someone you don't know or trust. 

5. Clearly state your limits about the level of intimacy you want in a relationship. 

6. Suggest your own ideas about what to do on dates. Meet in public places, and stay in public places, not 
in someone's house or room. 

7. Be aware of your surroundings at all times.

Budgeting can be very 
hard for most college students. 
Staying in the dorms is nice but 
the food gets kind of old. 
Especially if the food is the same 
thing all the time. 

In town two of the cheap- 
est fast food restaurants are 
McDonald's and Taco Bell. 
McDonald's dollar menu would be 
one of the best ways to eat 

Another way to eat cheap 
and yet still eat well would be 
grocery shopping. This is the 
greatest way for students to eat 
healthy and save money. 

The Butler cafeteria is 
probably the cheapest way to 
live, especially if you live in the 
dorm rooms. Yet, for most it gets 
old. So what you could probably 
do is get a group of friends and 
pile in money to go out to eat. 

For those students who 
want to eat healthy, they can go 
to the grocery stores to buy sal- 
ads and dressing. If you don't 
want to do that you can always 
go to the surrounding towns. In 
Augusta they have Dairy Queen, 
and Miller's 5, so no matter 
where you are you can eat pretty

Twenty-five percent of people all over 
the world are carriers of the dreaded staph 
bacteria. The infection that has been in the 
news lately is methicillin-resistant 
Staphylococcus aureus(MRSA), which is 
staph bacteria that is resistant to antibiotics. 
The infection has telltale signs, such as an 
abscess, boil, or bug bite looking wounds. 
These wounds are usually not anything to 
worry about but if they start oozing it is sug- 
gested to get it looked at by a medical profes- 

This type of staph infection was more 
commonly found in medical facilities up until 
the 1990s when cases started popping up 
around the country. The reason that schools 
are so susceptible to the spreading of this 
bacterium is all of the people. Students that 
partake in school sports need to be particular- 
ly careful. The equipment shared such as 
wrestling mats or locker rooms are very germy 
places were teams come in contact. Any 
places touched by student after student is 
more likely to have the staph bacteria on it. It 
is suggested to not share any personal items 
such as towels, workout equipment, or razors. 
If touching or using a public item is unavoid- 
able, wash your hands. It doesn't make any 
difference whether it is alcohol based hand 
sanitizer or good old soap and water. Keeping 
not only your hands clean but your overall 
cleanliness will significantly decrease your 
susceptibility to the bacteria. 

Janet Fry from Susan B. Allen's infec- 
tion control center says if you have an open 
wound to "clean the cut, put ointment on it 
and cover with a bandage." Fry goes on to 
say that people diagnosed with MRSA are not 
only at risk of spreading the bacteria to people 
but also their pets. She makes it clear that the 
bacteria didn't start with animals and is mainly 


a human sickness. If diagnosed with MRSA 
and you've been around animals it is a good 
idea to have a vet take a look at the animal. It 
is unlikely that they would get MRSA but there 
have been cases reported. The best way to 
keep you and your family, friends, and pets 
safe from MRSA is to wash your hands often. 



Scrub 'em. Washing your hands is the best way to prevent 



Surgery can be necessary if the infection gets too bad. 


The Grizzly Spring 2008 

Butler Pipeline student warning sent to all students 

If you have a draining wound, please come to College 
Health Service or your private physician to have it cultured. 
In the meantime: 

1. Keep the wound covered if draining, with a Band-Aid 
and apply antibiotic ointment. 

2. Don't share towels, washcloths, soap, makeup or any 
other personal item. 

3. If you have contact with a draining lesion, wash your 
hands. Bacteria and viruses are easily killed by washing 
hands with soap and water for 10 seconds or sanitizing 
them with an alcohol-based cleanser. 

4. If using exercise equipment, be sure to clean equipment 
before and after using. 

5. Wash towels, bedding and personal items in hot water, 
and use a chlorine bleach mixture (recommended 10 parts 
water to 1 part bleach) to sanitize things, such as bathroom 
sinks, showers, countertops, etc. 

Ouch. Getting shots can be painful, but it will help prevent 
further health problems.

Take a second to think about your life 
without one of your five senses, like not being 
able to smell your favorite flower or taste 
grandma's homemade pie; it's no doubt that 
life without these senses just wouldn't be sat- 
isfying. But what if you couldn't hear any- 
thing? What if you knew in your heart your 
family loved you, but couldn't hear them say it, 
or anything else for that matter? Most likely, 
the world of sign language would become the 

In some households it's not uncommon 
for the first language to be something other 
than English. For Jennifer Joiner, El Dorado 
freshman, it was very different from English; in 
fact it wasn't speaking at all. Ever since Joiner 
was born she was constantly being exposed 
to sign language, or communicating through 
hand gestures. Her great-grandmother, Alice 
Hayes, along with her brother, were both born 
deaf, and from seeing both her mother and 
grandmother signing to her, Joiner quickly 
picked it up. 

"Sign language was my first language, 
until I found out it was easier to talk," Joiner 

It wasn't long after that when Joiner's 
grandmother, Marti Skelton, and mother, 
Woodie Joiner, started to show her different 
signs. Since she had already begun to figure 
out what signing was, it really wasn't that hard 
for her to pick up new words. 

"We never scheduled a time, she 
would just practice when she went to see 
grandma," Joiner's mother says. 

'How?' is what Alice Hayes, the great-grandmother of Jennifer 
Joiner, El Dorado freshman, asks while talking with Joiner. 


When asked if she remembered 
Joiner's first words spoken in sign language, 
Ms. Joiner says, "When she was about 14 
months old she would sign 'milk' and 

The two also says it wasn't really a 
surprise to them when Joiner started to sign. 
"To me, it wasn't out of the ordinary because 
both my parents and I signed," Skelton says. 

Joiner has also found fun ways to both 
practice sign language and show others her 
ability. In her fifth grade talent show she inter- 
preted an entire children's book, "Coyote and 
Bobcat", in sign language. 

"I wore all black clothes with white 
gloves," she says. 

She would also talk to fellow class- 
mates as well. 

"In high school some of my friends 
knew a few words and we would talk back 
and forth to each other in class. I would also 
teach people the alphabet," she says. 

Sign language has proven to be a 
great ability to have in Joiner's life. Not only 
does it allow her to communicate with her 
family, but other unexpected people that have 
become a part of the picture. 

The Grizzly Spring 2008 

"My mom had a boyfriend whose son 
was deaf and I talked to him all the time," she 

Everyone has had an incident where 
they felt uncomfortable or out of place, possi- 
bly because they were a little different from 
those around them. But with having the ability 
to sign, Joiner and her family have eliminated 
that feeling in cases like these. 

Even though Joiner is great at signing 
and has been doing it since before she could 
talk, as a freshman in college, she is still 
learning new words. 

"My grandma teaches me new words 
every day, even when I talk to my great- 
grandma sometimes I still have to ask, 'what 
did she say?'" Joiner says. 

Joiner continues to work on her sign- 
ing, both at home and at school. Although 
there were not any sign language classes 
available at her high school, she is planning to 
sign up for them at Butler to further her expe- 

"I am studying to be an anesthesiolo- 
gist and want to be able to use sign language 
at work," she says. 

It's no doubt that speaking a second 
language can be helpful throughout one's life, 
and in some high schools it's even a require- 
ment to graduate, but you rarely ever see sign 
language as an option. It doesn't necessarily 
have to be required, but having the opportuni- 
ty to take the course would give students like 
Joiner the chance to either learn or improve 
their skills.

Emily Sander went 
missing Nov. 23, 2007. 
She was last seen at 
The Retreat, a bar in El 
Dorado. The search con 
tinued for almost two 
weeks before she was finally found 50 miles 
east of El Dorado and identified through 
dental records. Sander was laid to rest on 
Thursday, Dec. 6. Memorials were held on 
both the El Dorado and Andover campuses. 

Sander was attending Butler but did not

I Hero. 

A war is raging 
Ibetween the closely 
related games, Dance 
Dance Revolution and 
Guitar Hero, along with 
their maker, Konami and 
Activision. Lately, Guitar 
Hero has been climbing 
the game charts, being 
the most popular game 
put right now. To some 
though, Guitar Hero 
seems to be just a copy 
of Dance Dance 

Revolution with just a 
slight twist. The twists 
being that Guitar Hero 
involves hand-eye coor- 
dination, and Dance 
Dance Revolution or 
"DDR" involves foot-eye 
coordination. "DDR is 
more for the young kids, 
from about high school 
down, and Guitar Hero is 
more for older people 
who wish they could play 
a real guitar," Gamestop 

employee Dan Hoffman, 
Wichita freshman, says. 
Music genera is also 
another difference 
between the two. While 
Guitar Hero sticks to rock 
music, DDR plays songs 
from genera such as 
rock, pop, techno, and 
rap also. DDR also lets 
you shed some weight 
by moving your feet and 
dancing with the music 
unlike Guitar Hero, which 

involves either sitting or 
standing and pushing 
buttons. The most dis- 
tinctive differences 
between the two would 
be their backgrounds. 
While Guitar Hero only 
has a stage with people 
on it for each song, DDR 
shows different back- 
grounds, including some 
music videos with their 
songs. Either way, 
they're both fun to play.

Butler Community College 





A library is a place to study, learn 
and be creative. At Butler Community 
College's library of El Dorado, a student 
can also grab a great cup of coffee and a 
tasty snack to give their brain the boost to 

When the remodeling of the library 
began in 2005 the idea of a Library Latte 
was in the mind frames of the employees, 
but had not yet had the funding to incop- 
erate the idea into the college. The library 
had an upgrade from plain walls and floor 
to a colorful, welcoming atmosphere to 
learn. This upgrade also included leaving 
space for the future of Library Latte. 

Since there was room for the cof- 
fee shop itself, the next step was to push 
for funding. Funds were requested for 
three to four years, until finally the money 
came in. SCKLS funded Library Latte 
along with a $3,000 gift from Vernon 
Donnelly Bequest. Vernon Donnelly 
Bequest had heard of the idea and were 
excited to contribute the money for the 
college's library. 

Library Latte has given students 
an opportunity to enjoy their visit to the 
library and keep them coming back for 

The employees of Library Latte 
are students and some take advantage of 
the Co-op education course that Butler 
offers. Co-op education is when a student 
can work and get paid along with earning 
college credit. Many of the student work- 
ers earn experience such as food han- 
dling, customer service and training in the 
coffee industry. 

One of the activities that Library 
Latte provides for Butler students is Java 
Jam held once a month. Java Jam is an 
open house of the library and live music 
is played by Butler students. Java Jam is 
sponsored by the Student Government 

So if you haven't had a cup of cof- 
fee from Library Latte, then you are miss- 
ing out. If you are not a coffee drinker, 
there are also many snacks available to 
cure the hunger of a studious student at

Tools" was hilarious. The play had 
some really great parts. The set was awe- 
some and very low-key with not a lot of 
things to take in. This was good consider-

names of the characters because it took 
place in Kulyenchikov.

his daughter. They ended up falling in love
